Being the 16th hotel in the group’s South African portfolio, RHG maintains his ambitions to reach 150 hotels in operation and under development across Africa within the next five years.
Ramsay Rankoussi, Vice President, Development, Africa and Turkey of Radisson Hotel Group said: “South Africa remains a key focus market for us in Africa, and we are thrilled to announce our 16th hotel in the country following the opening of Radisson RED Johannesburg Rosebank last week. We are excited to further expand our presence across South Africa at a rapid rate as we continue on the road to recovery following the pandemic. Radisson Hotel Middelburg marks our third Radisson branded hotel in the country, reinforcing the brand’s presence and its strong potential in South Africa.”
The 150-room, contemporary new-build hotel will be within walking distance of the town's main shopping complex, the Middelburg Mall, which houses over 140 stores, including all of South Africa's recognized retail brands, as well as a variety of eateries and banking facilities.
A restaurant and bar, as well as a lobby lounge and pool bar, are all conveniently located within the hotel and will provide guests with a selection of healthy meals and refreshing drinks. In classic Radisson flair, the Radisson Hotel Middelburg will also include a fitness center, swimming pool, and pool deck to give guests with the ultimate work/life balance.
Daniel Trappler, Senior Director, Development, Sub-Saharan Africa of Radisson Hotel Group justify this investment by saying: “Our entry into Middelburg is a testament to Radisson Hotel Group’s development strategy in the country, in which we have identified key secondary and tertiary towns and cities that are displaying strong market dynamics, encouraging the the Group’s growth therein via conversion and new build opportunities. Radisson Hotel Middelburg will certainly assist in uplifting the town and support its drive to boost tourism as it is the only internationally branded hotel.”
